Heavily cinnamon and also clove. The leaves were very fine after going through the mail in a card, so it didn’t take long to steep. :) It smells sweet though I don’t think there is any sugar in this. It’s not bad, even without milk and sugar, which is how I would normally do spiced teas. I added some sugar to the last half a cup but it didn’t seem to bring out any other spices, just made it sweet.

Thanks, carol who for sending this in the Christmas card swap!

Thanks to Carol Who who sent this in the Christmas Card swap.

Dry leaf unfortunately didn’t look anything like the photo. The tea was pretty much mostly dust by the time it got to me, so my tea to water ratio was kind of iffy. The smell is rather strong in cinnamon and clove. It reminds me a bit of pumpkin pie spice.

Brewed the tea was kind of flat. I got a little bit of spice and vanilla, but the base wasn’t really robust enough to make a really good brew. It was mildly astringent and a little bit dry. I think I’ll try the rest of my sample again on another day and use up the rest of the leaf/powder. I have a feeling this would go better with some sweetener, maybe cream.
